Mr Nice Mrs Marks

by Judy Marks, Mr Nice Mrs Marks Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Mr Nice Mrs Marks book, 'I have long wanted to write a book about my life and the extraordinary years I spent with my husband Howard Marks. I feel now is the time. I want to write it from a woman's perspective and describe what it was like to be married to such a charismatic drug smuggler.' Judy Marks Howard Marks's story has passed into hippie folklore. At one time, the world's then most wanted man had 43 aliases, 89 phone lines and 25 registered companies. Thanks to the technical brilliance of his networking skills, it was estimated that he was trafficking as much as a tenth of all the marijuana smoked in the world. But this is only half the story. Intimately involved throughout was Marks's wife Judy. From living the high life hobnobbing with movie stars and euro trash to mixing it with the IRA and CIA, then the long, increasingly desperate years on the run, Mr Nice and Mrs Marks is about the exhilaration of their criminal life and the hell of not knowing what's happening when your husband stops telling you the truth. Now, for the first time, Judy tells her own side of the tale.

Drug War

by Peter Walsh, Drug War Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Drug War book, Drug War is a landmark modern history: the first ever full account of the United Kingdom’s fight against the illegal importation of drugs. Packed with remarkable revelations and thrilling anecdotes, it tells for the first time the story of the high-level traffickers who drugged Britain, and the secretive organisation that tried to stop them: the Investigation Division of HM Customs and Excise. The ID’s elite officers waged a fifty-year battle to stem the tide of cannabis, cocaine and heroin arriving by land, air and sea, and to track, arrest and prosecute the smuggling gangs, both organised and chaotic, who turned an amateur pastime into a multi-billion-pound trade. The result of more than 100 unique interviews, many with insiders who have never spoken publicly, it is a ground-breaking account of one of the most vital subjects of our times. It begins with the UN Single Convention of 1961, intended to enshrine a worldwide ban on narcotics. Yet within five years the UK was on the cusp of a narco-boom, driven by immigrants from its former colonies and by the eruption of the youth counterculture. The insidious effect was to corrupt key areas of British life, including airport baggage and freight handlers at Heathrow Airport, dockers at the major ports and even the Drug Squad at New Scotland Yard. Drug War chronicles: the first major ‘barons’, including the brilliant laser scientist Dr Gurdev Singh Sangha; the rise of hippie traffickers such as the legendary Howard Marks, and the violent gangland syndicates that ultimately brushed them aside; the ongoing rivalry between police and Customs and how this often blighted the law enforcement response; the emergence of London’s first heroin godfather, Gigi Bekir, and how the Turkish state was complicit in flooding the country with smack; the heavyweight ‘untouchables’ who eventually streamlined the drug business, and the extraordinary covert methods employed against them; and how secret liaison with British and American spy agencies led to the biggest cocaine seizures ever, the motherships of the Colombian cartels. Concluding with the series of mishaps and scandals that ushered in the Serious Organised Crime Agency, Drug War is a ground-breaking account packed with unique revelations, personal testimony and fresh analysis.

Jeremy Hutchinson S Case Histories

by Thomas Grant, Jeremy Hutchinson S Case Histories Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Jeremy Hutchinson S Case Histories book, THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER SHORTLISTED FOR THE CWA NON-FICTION DAGGER 'Thomas Grant has brought together Hutchinson's greatest legal hits, producing a fascinating episodic cultural history of post-war Britain that chronicles the end of deference and secrecy, and the advent of a more permissive society . . . Grant brings out the essence of each case, and Hutchinson's role, with clarity and wit' Ben Macintyre, The Times 'An excellent book . . . Grant recounts these trials in limpid prose which clarifies obscurities. A delicious flavouring of cool irony, which is so much more effective than hot indignation, covers his treatment of the small mindedness and cheapness behind some prosecutions' Richard Davenport-Hines, Guardian Born in 1915 into the fringes of the Bloomsbury Group, Jeremy Hutchinson went on to become the greatest criminal barrister of the 1960s, '70s and '80s. The cases of that period changed society for ever and Hutchinson's role in them was second to none. In Case Histories, Jeremy Hutchinson's most remarkable trials are examined, each one providing a fascinating look into Britain's post-war social, political and cultural history. Accessibly and entertainingly written, Case Histories provides a definitive account of Jeremy Hutchinson's life and work. From the sex and spying scandals which contributed to Harold Macmillan's resignation in 1963 and the subsequent fall of the Conservative government, to the fight against literary censorship through his defence of Lady Chatterley's Lover and Fanny Hill, Hutchinson was involved in many of the great trials of the period. He defended George Blake, Christine Keeler, Great Train robber Charlie Wilson, Kempton Bunton (the only man successfully to 'steal' a picture from the National Gallery), art 'faker' Tom Keating, and Howard Marks who, in a sensational defence, was acquitted of charges relating to the largest importation of cannabis in British history. He also prevented the suppression of Bernardo Bertolucci's notorious film Last Tango in Paris and did battle with Mary Whitehouse when she prosecuted the director of the play Romans in Britain. Above all else, Jeremy Hutchinson's career, both at the bar and later as a member of the House of Lords, has been one devoted to the preservation of individual liberty and to resisting the incursions of an overbearing state. Case Histories provides entertaining, vivid and revealing insights into what was really going on in those celebrated courtroom dramas that defined an age, as well as painting a picture of a remarkable life.

The Mammoth Book Of Drug Barons

by Paul Copperwaite, The Mammoth Book Of Drug Barons Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Mammoth Book Of Drug Barons book, The rise - and fall - of the outlaw lords of the drug world, from the Cali Cartel, the richest, most powerful crime syndicate in history, to Britain's biggest drug baron, Curtis 'Cocky' Warren and the 'Essex Triple Murders'. From freewheeling cannabis operations to the lethal 'heaviness' of organized crime, the doings of the dealers, bouncers, bagmen and 'taxmen' - those crazy enough to extort money from drug dealers - of a ruthlessly violent underworld. Here you will find an account of the pursuit and capture of 'Mr Nice', Howard Marks (along with the complementary recollections of Mrs Marks), the story of the hunt for Pablo Escobar and an in-depth piece on cocaine production deep in the Colombian interior. This is the no-holds-barred, inside story of drug trafficking, from the Golden Triangle to the Golden Gate and from Spain's Costa del Crime to the future of conflict and prohibition with its fresh cast of Afghan warlords and central European gangsters. It examines how and why things go wrong, and the price which is paid when they do.
